Extravehicular Activity (EVA)
ILC Dover began development of a dedicated zero gravity low earth orbit spacesuit in the early 1970s.
Today, our zero gravity spacesuits continue to lead the industry. Astro™ is our EVA spacesuit that protects astronauts when outside the spacecraft. This standard-setting suit is engineered for high mobility, environmental protection, ease-of-use, and fit.
